e Five Thoroughbreds and Ian Brennan’s ROCKETEER (Curlin) lived up to his name when airing by four lengths in his career debut going seven panels at this venue last October. Working consistently for trainer Brad Cox, the colt posted a bullet five-furlong move in :59 4/5 at Churchill Downs Mar. 31 before going four furlongs in :48 4/5 Apr. 6. A grandson of Grade I winner Stop Traffic (Cure the Blues), the colt takes blinkers off for this go around. Tyler Gaffalione gets the mount. Repole Stable and St Elias Stable team up with More Vino (Vino Rosso), a $400,000 Keeneland September purchase. Trained by Todd Pletcher, the colt marked his debut with a 1 1/2-length score going 1 mile 40 yards at Tampa Mar. 10. Irad Ortiz Jr. joins the fray here. TJCIS PPs
